Stuffing Registration Bags

Organizing CHC Registration Bags

Cerner Associate Jennifer Kraxner really went beyond the call of duty to organize the registration bags that all CHC attendees receive when they check in. Inside each bag is a hand-washed aluminum water bottle for all attendees to use as part of Cerner’s Go Green initiative.

CHC09 009

There will be water bottles throughout the convention center so be sure to bring your bottle with you to all your sessions.
